Has William Weslow's obituary been posted here or elsewhere? I had no idea that he died last January. I interviewed him several years ago but still have yet to transcribe it.

Oh dear, I missed this.  Did he talk about his time in Seattle in the interview?

No, sorry. It was an interview focusing on the NYCity Ballet tour to Japan and Australia in 1958. He seemed quite ill when I interviewed him so I am glad that he is no longer suffering. He seemed to love Maria Tallchief and had a poster of her (in Firebird) on the wall. He also had kind words for Allegra Kent. He could be quite sarcastic, compassionate, cranky and deeply moving remembering certain people and other things.
